Dolpo Simikot Trekking via Limi Valley offers the best scenery on the north-western side of Nepal. This trek can be done from Jumla or Humla and is also considered among the best trekking destination in Nepal. Within its confines lie the Rara national park, the smallest park in Nepal, where in turn the country’s largest lake, the Rara Lake can be found (10.8 sq. km. 2,990 m). Considered one of the finest parks in the world, Rara National Park abounds in coniferous forest and is the ideal habitat for the musk deer, Himalayan black bear and other faunae. The Danfe (Impeyan Pheasant) the national bird of Nepal flies above while a variety of fish, the snow trout, inhabit the Rara lake. Adding charm to the region is its generally open-hearten and friendly people.
